"Forget Railroad Earth or YMSB, the Stringdusters are where it's at if you're looking for the best modern bluegrass-style band."

Agree that the Dusters are a very good band, but "forget Railroad Earth"?!? Not by a long shot my friend.

While RRE's sound may be evolving & getting (depending upon the song) a little heavier (less bluegrassy, more jamgrass rock, which I think is a smart move btw) when they want to put on their bluegrass shoes they can pick with the best of them.

But to each their own--you like vanilla, I prefer chocolate.

I didn't intend to imply that you should forget about RRE. I LOVE RRE and Yonder, particularly RRE. I was trying to make the point that if you're looking for the best modern bluegrass-oriented music, that the Dusters are even better than RRE and YMSB.

I've realized it greatly helps to double check posts before submitting them, to ensure they make sense to others (a practice WT would surely benefit from lol. Love his posts, but I have to read them SLOWly to make sure I understand his ramblings.)
